tv Way Too Early MSNBC September 23, 2014 2:30am-3:01am PDT
it's tuesday, september 23rd, welcome tow "way too early." the team normally gets me going in the morning. i run through it. it works out every day. i highly recommend that. it does not work for the kids. we'll show you the video later in the cooler. we start with thebreaking news overnight in syria. the u.s. is beginning a new phase in the assault on islamic militants. the u.s. and five arab allies launched their first airstrikes against isis in syria. they include a mix of tomahawk missiles and fighter aircraft. this video where large explosions can be seen from a distance appears to show the aftermath of one of the first strikes. nbc news has not yet been able to verify its authenticity. . here's what else we know at this hour. officials say 50 airstrikes have hit islamic state targets. many in the self-declared capital.
20 members were killed. some targeted the front. nbc news has learn ed the focus of the operation includes isis headquarters, command centers, training sites and weapons facilities. isis is vowing to retaliate and blaming saudi arabia for allowing those attacks to occur. syria's foreign ministry says the united states told its ambassador to the u.n. that military action was eminent. president obama arrives later today for the general assembly. he's expected to use his speech tomorrow to urge other countries to support his plans to to defeat isis. up to 500 iraqi soldiers are missing and believed to be dead after an attack by isis at an army base in western iraq. we turn to news at home concerning the nfl. the owner of the baltimore ravens issued a sturn blunt offense of his team's handling of the incident. he says it's pretty humbling when your integrity is questioning. it follows a sport by espn that said his team intentionally misled and tried to cover up
what happened in atlantic city in that ka e see know elevator on february 15th. yesterday the team released a seven-page letter breaking down the accusations. after that document's release, he spoke directly to reporters while placing the blame squarely on ray rice's camp. >> the majority of the sources are people that work for ray. almost everything in there is anonymous, but it's clear from the subject matter that it's ray's attorney, it's ray's agent and it's ray's friends. and they are building a case for reinstatement. the best way to build a case with reinstatement is to make everybody else look like they are lying. >> i am thoroughly aware of what the league expects the team to do in instances like this and
the people in my organization did their jobs. their jobs as they are defined and expected to be met by the league. so nobody is losing a job here. >> i can't lead, we can't lead an investigation and be stepping on the prosecutor's shoes and the nfl. we can't do it. >> so among the unanswered questions, why couldn't the nfl get access to the videotape from inside the elevator? espn reports that the tape was readily available telling mike and mike, quote, there were player players in las vegas a week or two after the incident. one player said you want to see the videotape of what happened? >> yet the ravens claim they couldn't see it. and the people in the nfl said they never saw it. new detail this is morning about the man arrested for jumping the white house fence with a knife and entering an unlocked door.
omar gonzales is being held without bail. prosecutors say he's a danger to the president. he's facing charges of unlawfully entering a restricted building with a deadly or dangerous weapon. officials say he had 800 rounds of ammunition in a a nearby vehicle when he jumped the fence friday night. in addition, gonzales allegedly had two hatchets and a machete and we're also learning this is not his first run-in with the law. he was arrested in july for reck bless driving in virginia. he had 11 guns in his car and a map with a circle around the white house. he was stopped last month for walking by the south fence of the white house. now gonzales had had a hatchet in his waistband, but police eventually let him go. the veteran's ex-wife is now speaking out about the struggle ls he's faced after returning from iraq. >> i didn't understand, looking back now i'm thinking i wish there was something i could have done to help him.
because he's not a bad guy i think. i want him to get treatment. he doesn't need to be punished. he didn't go to the white house to hurt obama. >> he's a standup guy. he would never hurt anybody or anything of the sort. he's losing his mind. he's suffering from post-traumatic stress. it's hard to see a man go down the drain. he sacrificed his mind, his family, everything for this country and i don't think this country pays enough attention to our soldiers. >> afghan soldiers who disappeared on saturday have been found on the canadian border. a major and two captains from the afghanistan national army arrived for training exercises at camp edwards. they were located monday at the rainbow bridge and officials tell nbc news they were trying to cross into canada potentially to seek asylum. it comes after e policemen were found in buffalo after missing
from a drug program. business news for you this tuesday, the big headline is new action from the obama administration to prevent so-called tax inversions where companies move overseas for the sole purpose of reducing their tax bill. we are live from london with more. what's the latest, steve? >> the latest is the administration and jack lew made it uneconomical to do these deals. u.s. companies that have stockpiles of cash from overseas earnings haven't been bringing that money home. they move headquarters overseas and keep it away from tax authorities. $178 billion worth of deals since the start of 2013 including the burger king deal. so what the administration is trying to do is get that money back home and keep it home as well. elsewhere in terms of the markets, it wasn't necessarily
down to military action in the middle east. it was more about a weak housing data, existing home sales in the united states. it was about chinese factory data. and it was about concerns that the latest move, the man in charge of the european central bank hasn't managed to galvanize the european company. so a whole variety of factors affecting the last 24 hours. >> apple seems to be riding high, breaking record sales with their iphone 6 sales. >> the first weekend sales were $10 million. that's right in the middle of units expected by analysts. some analysts now are say iing the end of the december quarter, we could see 45 million sold. don't forget they did this without china. china sales have been held up by regulator issues. we're going. to see enormous growth in the
china market. so absolutely extraordinary. in terms of volume that total sales that represents $6 billion worth of sales. >> has there been more of a breakdown whether more people interested in the 6 or 6 plus or divided camps on that? >> i think it's divided. what is interesting on this side of the atlantic, a lot of people buy them with mobile phone contract from an operator or an at&t. so are buying the phones outright and not having a contract. and others are buying with contract as well. when buying with contract, you get the phone cheaper up front. hence they are going for the more expensive model. so many gadgets. i can't use half of what's on the hand sets. >> they made a splash with these. it use to be small and invisible. now they have got sboon the larger screens. steve, great to see you.

that. we'll be right back. >> u, if that was me, i would have gone under. i would have slid directly under the table. if you won't take me off. but thank you for bleeping that. i was worried we would forget to bleep it. the station later apologized. the reporter is starting a campaign to convince alaskans to vote yes on the ballot. she posted up a video why i quit. >> adults should be allowed to choose what they drink, why? i need you in the very least to start the conversation. talk to a friend, a mother, o co-worker, brother, anyone. share your own my marijuana story. show them that we smokers are
responsible contributing members to society, changing one heart and mind at a time is the only way to legalize marijuana and bask in lady liberty's glory. >> really interesting. as of right now, green has only discussed why she quit and not how she quit. that brings us to our twitter question. what are your thoughts? will the rorser's move help or hurt the ballot measure? tweet us your most creative answers. we'll put the best ones later in the show. some were upset how she did it. other people were it's a dichotomy because they'd love to be able to do that. still ahead on "way too early," from celebration to the sidelines, how one nfl player's victory dance may leave lasting effects. and which city takes the smarts contest? the coasts battle it out. what do you think? east or west? let's hear it. we're on the east coast.
